The Journal of Philosophy & Scripture is now publishing
new issues annually. We are now accepting submissions for the 2011 issue.
Call For Papers
We invite submissions of any length (though typically
less than 7,000 words) from a wide variety of philosophical
perspectives and religious traditions. We are as interested
in brief and provocative sketches as we are in extended
and polished pieces. We welcome submissions from faculty,
graduate students and other researchers. Publication in
JPS does not preclude publication elsewhere.
Articles should be submitted in blind-review
format including a cover page with author's name, institutional
affiliation, and contact information, and an abstract
of no more than 100 words. Submissions are screened
by the editorial staff and then submitted for peer review.
To submit electronic copies (preferably
in .doc or .rtf format), or to be added to e-mail list
and receive future announcements, contact:
Journal of Philosophy & Scripture is an e-journal
dedicated to reading scripture in light of philosophy
and to examining philosophy in light of scripture. The
Journal's task is informed by three primary aims: (1) to
encourage philosophical discussions of religion to attend
to the primary sacred texts (e.g. the Bible, the Qur'an,
the Bhagavad-Gita) that fundamentally shape the religions
under discussion, (2) to encourage a process of mutual
reflection by means of which both philosophy and scripture
may be more clearly illuminated, and (3) to do the above
with a keen eye to possible effects on the ways in which
we practice philosophy and religion.
